>Second is the more interesting problem. I want to use rpm as my package manager. and so i downloaded rpm source and tried to compile it unsuccessfully. then i unpacked the binary targz and tried to run it. some libs missing. compiled them. then when i try to install anything it says things like gcc missing, or glibc missing. I have already compiled it but obviously rpm doesnt see them all. do you think i could just manually add the list of packages somewhere (/var/log/packages maybe???). i dont think this would work but if it does, please let me know here to add the list of packages and how.h
Did you check out the rpm hint? Also you may find LvR interesting, check
